Sea Synergy was opened by local marine biologist Lucy Hunt in 2014 to provide research , educational activities , and other projects on the lovely Irish coast.  Located in Lucys hometown, the beautiful seaside village Waterville, on the Ring of Kerry, SW Ireland, Sea Synergy enables people to discover what lies beneath the Wild Atlantic Way through an informative and interactive marine interpretive centre and lots of activities for all ages.

Sea Synergy aims to bring people and the marine environment together to have a better overall understanding of Ireland’s marine biodiversity through interesting exhibits, fun workshops and activities, in turn creating connection, appreciation, marine stewardship and conservation.

Sea Synergy collaborates with and promotes local marine activity providers such as sea sports centres, wildlife watching trips, boat tours and fishing trips.  The centre also supports wildlife charities such as Birdwatch Ireland and the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group.
